Like: I’ve been exploring my neighbourhood a little bit recently, and this has largely made me realize how sad it is that I’ve been living here for nearly two years now, and there are things five minutes away from my apartment that I don’t know about. Case in point: Taylor Creek Park! (The Globe and Mail has a really lovely description of this “ribbon of otherness” here.)
I was walking the trail along the creek last month, and came across this magical, secluded field (above photo) where wild rabbits with cottontails were spotted briefly before darting away. This field has a few picnic tables, but not many, and also has a fairly large firepit with enough seating for about 20 people around it! I wonder where you get a permit for that?
A little further down the trail, there is also a very small and very pleasant bog (bottom photo). In general, Taylor Creek Park is so nice for having a picnic, maybe walking a dog (as many here do), or just wandering and feeling like you’ve gotten away from the city for a little while. Thumbs up! I just hope they’ve repaired that bridge that was damaged after a recent huge rainfall.
